Kings Beach is a small fishing area off of Ocean Drive. This is a great launch sight and will put you directly out into rock gardens and reefs. This area can be as flat as a pond or "your car might get washed away" scary. Please check the local forecast and swell size before arriving. Currents here will run East and West along the island and will not pull too strongly in either direction, but they will, as always, have a large effect on the swell size and shape. If you paddle off to the right, you will arrive at Brenton Point. Please be wary as the current here will start to pick up and rip through either heading into or out of Narragansett Bay. If you paddle off to the left, you will eventually arrive at Lands End. Along the coastline there are several rock gardens to play in and some great surfing spots. Again, this is an area which can at times seem very calm and simple and then quickly change over to Hell on water. Please bring a friend and be careful.
